Semaglutide Weight Loss Medication
Prescribed under the brand names Ozempic®, and Wegovy®

 SEMAGLUTIDE is  a safe and effective medication that’s prescribed under the brand names Wegovy®, Ozempic®, and Rybelsus®.  Over the last 15 years it has been used to treat type 2 diabetes, but has recently been approved by the FDA to help manage weight loss in adults. Studies report more pounds lost during clinical trials than other weight loss medications. Studies also show better results when combined with a healthy diet that supports weight loss. In 2 months, patients can lose up to 25 pounds. In 4 months, 50 pounds or more can be lost. Patients can stay on semaglutide for as long as they wish with monthly physician monitoring. It is also recommended patient are meeting with a dietitian nutritionist at least monthly when they are on the program.

WEIGHT LOSS RESULTS
Semaglutide works because it is part of a class of medications called GLP-1 (glucagon-like peptide-1) receptor agonists which insulin secretion.  At higher doses, semaglutide acts on centers in the brain and suppresses appetite.  It is
injected under the skin with a tiny insulin needle, once weekly at any time of day, with or without food, and should be injected on the same day each week.

AT YOUR FIRST APPOINTMENT
You will meet with our medical provider. They will draw your blood and preform an EKG and you will receive the medication that day. You will continue to meet with them weekly the first month.  At these appointments they will take your weight and inject the semaglutide for you.  After the first month you will administer the medication weekly at home and will only need to come in monthly.  At the fist visit our medical provider will refer you to our preferred dietitian nutritionist who specializes in all areas of weight loss from nutrition related health conditions to diets specifically for semaglutide and other weight loss drugs. They will meet with you initially to help you determine how many calories you need, asses your body fat with our STYKU body scan and introduce our recommended diet programs; the fast weight loss diet with meal replacements or our signature meal plan diet with 1200-2000 calorie meal plans. This process takes about 15 minutes. Longer weight loss dietitian nutritionist visits will most likely be covered by your insurance plan.
